Me: "I have never been this close to the bottom before. I have $250. I haven't had that small a safety net since the first time I had a paycheck. It's literally my every other thought."
Him: "You know you're going to be okay, right?"
Me: "Yeah, I know it."
Him: "But do you FEEL that way?"
Me: "Not at all!"
Him: "But you KNOW it. You're going to be fine."
Me: "Yes. I know it. But I can't FEEL it."
I walk into the kitchen and pour myself a drink. A drink made with the vodka he bought me.
Me: "Let's stop talking about this. I'm going to cry."
Him: "You're going to be okay."
Maybe, but I'm still going to cry...
